Description
Grand History of Navarre

Pedro de Agramont y Zaldibar (ca. 1566–1635) was a writer, historian, and notary from Tudela. He is recorded as having defended a thesis that Tudela had been founded by Tubal, the grandson of Noah. He is the author of the Primera Historia de Navarra, a 1,500-page history of Kingdom of Navarre completed by the converted Jew after 30 years of work in 1632. The comprehensive text is believed to be the first history of the kingdom, but was never published. Nonetheless, it has served as an important source for various authors over the centuries.
